Post Application: Taneera, Retribution Paladin
In Character Information:

Quietly Taneera walked along the corridor to the barracks armoury and peered around the door to see Illona polishing her armour, a battle-worn but clean and ready mace laying nearby. Though facing away, Illona smiled and said "I know you're there"

"Heh..."
"What is it this time?"
"This ti- what? Can't I come and say hello to my favourite bodyguard?"
"I am your only bodyguard, and I know you well enough to know when you're after something."

Taneera sighs "Fine, alright. I wanted your opinion on a matter..."
"Oh?" At this point Illona paused and looked around from her armour.
Hesitating, Taneera thinks over her words "I have... had an offer from an Azerothian combat unit to join their ranks in assaulting the Hellfire Citadel in Tanaan."
Illona tilts her head and looks quizically at Taneera.
"Explain?"
"Well, some of their forces were recuperating when they had a sudden call to action. I was nearby at the time and offered my aid. Afterwards some of their number bought me a drink and wanted to talk..."


Amongst the bustle of Stormshield, Taneera sits in a tavern with her 'fellow' Draenei from another time.
"You fight well alongside us. Would you consider joining formally? I'm sure your admission would be looked upon favourably. We need all the help we can get when we go up against the Citadel"
Taneera looked across the table at Issyn and the hunter that stood behind her, trying to sense any hidden motive behind the words of these draenei from another world.
"To stop history repeating itself?"
Issyn shared a glance with the figure behind her then looked back to Taneera "I- we're out of history now. What is happening is different and far, far worse."
"I have heard tales from this Azeroth of yours. Your wars. The destruction of your namesake city and how you chased Hellscream to this world. I have also heard of your Outland, the remains of the Exiles Refuge floating in the Nether. I am not of your world, but this is my world, and I would die before I see Draenor destroyed by Ner'zhul or the Legion."
"So then, you'll join?"
Taneera pauses "I... would need to ask someone else first. But you will have an answer shortly. Now, if you will excuse me."
"Of course. Safe journeys until then."
Nodding with a parting "May the Light protect you." Taneera stands and leaves.


The Paladin waits as Illona takes this on board.
"So... you come, and you ask, but you have already made up your mind, yes?"
"I suppose. But also-"
"You wish me to remain here and lead the troops while you are away or until you request our presence?"
"...will you stop doing that 'lona!"

Illona shrugs "I know you too well, remember? I have only one request, make sure you bring that body of yours back, I am rather fond of it."
"I will. I'll be back soon, when we are free."



(This is what happens when your bodyguard stands indecently close all the time. Every time I turned around!)

Out of character Information:

Class: Paladin

Specialisation and Role: Retribution, I have a big hammer and I hit things. Across all of my toons the main focus for me has been DPS. Prior to WoD I was ranged with Hunter/Mage but now mostly up close and personal with Paladin.

OS: My off-spec is Protection, so I am capable of being an emergency, last resort tank. I really only use this spec in guild groups as I tend to be slow and overly cautious - which seems to really annoy the "The light's yellow! Floor it!" type gamers who are in a hurry to get through it.
I don't currently have any experience of working with another tank in raids either.

Gear: My focus has been on Crit/Mastery/Haste to allow for bigger damage and faster CD's on abilities. I'm open to direction on re-prioritising stats if there is a better route. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/a ... era/simple

Past Experience: Pretty much all of the raiding I have done has been with Kindred Spirits when I joined them back in Cata. I was a Rogue during the Dragon Soul progression, switching to mage/hunter for MoP raiding. WoD has mostly been a mix of Paladin/Mage with raiding. For the last couple of months I have been tagging along with the Sunday night Vanguard raids to make up numbers (and I must be doing something right as you keep having me along :-D )

Real Life Age: 28

Attitude: Fairly laid-back and calm most of the time and happy to work with a raid team that knows what they are doing.

Attendance: Currently as I work on Sundays, this has made me available to raid. From March I may have to revisit my application as I cannot guarantee being available on time due to the unpredictable nature of LARP. Should other nights become active again I may be able to make those depending on my work shifts or existing commitments in RL. That is something I would have to look at when the situation arises.

Commitment: My current guild "Kindred Spirits" seems to make up about 1/3 of your raid team at the moment, and I keep receiving gentle prodding to join up :P . A couple of months back Issyn asked me if I could help make up numbers as you'd had a couple drop out/suddenly be unavailable. Since then I've been coming back every week to lend my crystalline-hammer to your progression.

On advice from Alphachino I changed one of my talents for a better proc rate. So I am open to and listen to guidance when given :-)

I haven't applied anywhere else and don't look to either. I'm happy to take part in RP (though I have lapsed a bit with online RP, I regularly RP in a weekly gaming group and participate in LARP)

Do you understand the following?

Yep - that's fine.


Computer and Connection:

I bought a new computer this year as the previous one was having issues keeping up. Internet connection is fine for the most part, though I do have the odd occasion where it vanishes (tends to be when weather/atmosphere is doing funky stuff) when that happens I have other means to contact my guild and advise on my situation.

UI add-ons: I have DBM, Recount and Iskar Assist, as well as a few others such as Titan Panel and Atlas. I use Curse to keep track of add-ons and updates.
